Pain in upper left abdomin

A few days ago, I had an extremely sharp pain right under my left ribs. The pain would go away if I laid down but when I was standing, walking or sitting it would begin to work again. What could this be?

Did anthing happen to your prior to this sharp pain, like a fall or a punch?
Or had yu eaten anthing that yu do not normally eat?

The stomach and spleen are located on the left hand side just under the breast.  

Lower than that can be problems with yur kidney.  Do you have any waterworks problem?

As you feel that the left side of your ribs are starting to expand and if yu still feel uncomfortable.  Then I suggest you seek medical advice when yu will be examined thoroughly.
